Raising the debt ceiling is not the problem causing economic uncertainty around the world. It would take less than half an hour to eliminate the problem, so the country and the rest of the world could progress with recovery from the Republican Recession. Despicably blackmailing the country into preserving the corporate millionaires and billionaires welfare entitlements to prevent national bankruptcy through increased interest rates is the problem. Demanding that the elderly, the disabled, and children must die to preserve the reprehensible extortion employed by the corporate co-opted Republican Party is the problem. Obviously, no one is going to be happy with the results of the negotiations on raising the debt ceiling, so quit negotiating to give away the country which is not yours to give away, and demand Congress vote on a clean debt ceiling bill. Make Congress go on record to either allow the country to recover from the Republican Recession or plunge it into the Republican Depression, and let the voters see who stands with them and who is pulling them off the cliff with them. Make it clear to them that you will unilaterally veto anything but a clean debt ceiling bill, and leave it up to them to pass a solution over your veto. Be persistent, do the right thing, and lead as you were elected to do!
